Volvo Ocean Race – It’s getting hot and sticky in southern England


'One Design Volvo Ocean 65 - Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15'    Rick Deppe

As the clock continues to wind to the next edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, the nights are hotting up at the Green Marine boatyard in chilly southern England as the very first One Design Volvo Ocean 65 is stuck together.

It's been a week since the arrival of the boat’s main components – the first hull came in from Persico, Italy, on March 14, followed two days later by the first deck built by Multiplast in France – and the team at Green Marine are making dramatic progress.

The boatbuilders have been taping the existing frames into the boat using pre-pregnated carbon fibres and the five remaining bulkheads.

Every third night throughout the process the whole boat is heated up to 75 degrees Celsius for all the glues and resins to be set to the correct specifications.

Launch date for the boat is in June.

'We’ve been keeping a keen eye on the construction specifications of the hull and deck which were unusually built by someone else,' adds Green Marine Construction Project Manager Connell Daino.
